Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Exchange

As expected Microsoft Exchange Server serves as an Email server, enabling us to contact external partners, and hosting our user's mailboxes calendars, contacts, and tasks. It also integrates with our Skype for Business Server that covers our conferencing needs. We have chosen to install a pair of Microsoft Exchange Servers, in order to increase their availability.
  • Email Exchange from and to internal and external partners
  • Host user calendars
  • Host user mailboxes
  • Would be nice if all management options were available in the GUI management.
  • Would be nice if there were less technical users / mailboxes in the AD.
  • Would like to see simpler implementation of DAGs.
  • Access to log files could be easier. A tool to search them / filter logs would be nice to have.
  • Outlook Web Access
  • Mailbox Handling
  • DAGs
  • We had to solve multiple issues, troubleshoot and spend a lot of time on problems.
  • Mailbox maintenance is practically automatic, so that's a saver!
  • Exchange Server Calendar is problematic to sync with external solutions. Had to spend a lot of time on this, with no success after all...
We have not tried other Email server products yet, but we are about to make this step in the near future. We are definitely going to try several Linux-based Email Server solutions so that we can choose the one that better suits our needs. Have some time to do this, as our current Exchange Server is supported until 2025!

Do you think Microsoft Exchange delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Microsoft Exchange's feature set?


Did Microsoft Exchange live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Microsoft Exchange go as expected?


Would you buy Microsoft Exchange again?


Would see Microsoft Exchange as a suitable solution for medium / large companies. Smaller companies are probably better off using a simpler implementation of an Email server. Also, the licensing costs are considerable so smaller companies probably will have a difficult time to manage to pay them. Large companies would be probably the best fit for an Exchange Server implementation.
